stevie: the story behind the shawl
they call her the white witch for a reason.
The legendary Stevie Nicks twirled and whirled her way through the ages and into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, as an unforgettable rock goddess and style icon of the 70s, 80s, and beyond. Never without a spinning shawl strewn over her shoulders, Stevie made her mantles a staple of every show and her public image, from Fleetwood Mac to her solo career and back again. In her decades of stardom and live performances, Stevie has showcased enough show-stopping ensembles to fill a handful of closets and inspire multiple generations of modern day mystics.
The Stevie Wrap
Stevie’s look was cultivated and patched together from the bohemian vintage shops of California. Waves of velvet, chiffon, leather and lace filled her closet and lit up the stage, inspiring women around the country to follow suit from the stadium to the runway. She took risks but knew herself, cultivating a style that is uniquely Stevie, big hair, top hats, sequins and all. What many people don’t know is that the wild costumery allowed Stevie Nicks to come alive, escape herself, and battle intense stage fright at the beginning of her career. The clothes were an invitation to be whoever she wanted to be, to spin and swirl and sing, uninhibited. Now, years later, these trends are reemerging on the scene as we relive the 70s and perhaps call on some of those non-conformist notions in a time of national need.
Shrouded in mystery, mysticism and layered gypsy style, the White Witch has inspired fashion and free spirits for the last 50 years. She is iconic, and the inspiration for our timeless fringed Stevie Cape. This 100% Italian Cashmere fringed cape is versatile, adaptable, and born to travel, the perfect chic companion to a wandering soul or a modern woman on-the-go. In this day of overconsumption and fast fashion, we are going against the grain, creating extraordinary handmade pieces that will last a lifetime. The Stevie Cape is crafted carefully on a handloom by an Italian artisan, slowly and sustainably in accordance with our brand values. We all exist under the same moon, on one planet, that we must care for and protect.
The Stevie Wrap
At One Moon, we know that the right garment is far more than a collectible for your closet. It’s a uniform, a bold statement, a symbol of who you are and what you believe. The Stevie invites you to release that free spirit, that refined wildcat in couture, that whirling dervish of a woman with an adventurous heart. She inspires us to reach outside our comfort zones, and into the unknown, to expand and express in a whole new way. She reminds us of the magic inside and all around us, emboldening the wearer to let loose and take a twirl.
